What an awesome day and memorable adventure! We lucked out with Frank as our guide when we arrived for our first ever attempt at fly fishing. Frank loves what he does and it shows--he also goes the extra mile to make sure his guests are learning, progressing, and having fun. His sense of timing and humor as we got tangled, snagged, and fumbled our way down the Pere Marquette was worth the price of admission. All we had to do was show up and let it unfold. A patient teacher, skillful navigator, and spinner of tales not quickly forgotten--Frank is an outdoor multi-tasker not easily replicated. I can't say which part of our day we enjoyed the most--but we all knew each other (for better or worse!) after sharing a boat. He was majorly disappointed that we didn't land a fish but avid motorcyclists all three of us, we also knew it was more about the camaraderie, the scenery, and livin' the moment. Thanks Frank--we'll be back whether the fish are biting or not! Mindy B.
